    I am just installing the driveterrain - decided to use full XT with Jagwire cables in SID blue.
    I like the look - hope you'll like it as well.
    This build is looking good! I like the blue cables

    What grips are those?

    Hi!

    I have new wheels already - Mavic Crossmax XL. And new brakes will be Hope Tech M4 with floating rotors - I am just waiting for new hoses (Jagwire Hyflow) to change it.

    Pic of the bike on new wheels:

    Hi!

    Thanks.
    I just got the brakes and hoses. I am going to change the original black hoses to Jagwire Hyflow in the same SID blue color as the driveterrain cables
    I will work on it tonight, so hopefully everything will work out and I'll post some pictures of the Hope Tech M4 brakes with new hoses

    Just two pics of the brakes with Jagwire Hyflow hoses fitted:





    The fork is great. Doesn't have the platform and is very plush - very similar to the back wheel. So It seems this is very good match.

    Best regards

    Don't do that! You'll be lucky to get only the half of the brakes' preformance.
    A few weeks ago I had to buy Jagwire hoses to fit my old Juicy 7 from the previous bike to the newly assembled MMV and got attracted by plenty of availaible colors too And ... these hoses are just balloons - I easily push the lever to the handlebar on the perfectly bleeded brakes
    Experimenting, I've replaced this hose with the original one and got the braking power again. So it was definitely a hose's fault in degraded braking power.

    By the way, my bike on the pump track - a few days after it was completely built.
    Waiting for the new tubeless tyres and goodridge hoses

    Hi!

    I already did it
    Don't have any issue. Maybe the rear brake feels a bit softer than the front - but I will have to rebleed it later anyway.
    The front is perfect, I would not be able to push the lever to handlebar.

    Nice bike - similar setup to mine

    Best regards

    Rare thing! Mountain bike in mountains Crimea, Ukraine, all mountain riding.
    Saddle's nose on the photos is set a bit too high, that's the seatpost's fault.

    The stems are 110/40 degrees and they are a bit high for racing or competition but the are great for cruising around town

    Looks sick with the white frame and anodized red bits! Now go get it a bit dirty, it looks too clean!

    Very nice. How does the Maxle rear upgrade feel? I've heard it makes wonders.

    I highly recommend the rear Maxle kit.
    You are going from a standard (tiny) skewer to a 12mm threaded through axle.
    Keep in mind a standard skewer is only 9mm at the wheel mounting boss on the fork or frame.

    I had roughly 3 months riding the bike before installing the Maxle kit.
    It gives a much firmer feel to the rear over the standard skewer (aluminum, steel or Ti).
    I don't have any engineering data behind my recommendation, all I can say is you can feel the difference.
    It makes a very nice rear suspension system work even better.
    I purchased from the US Marin web store for about $90.

    my first marin bike but sold it two month later.
    2007 East peak (small)


    But got 2007 MT.Vision (X-Small)



    Magura durin 100. recently replaced and serviced under recall program.
    mostly XT.
    carbon handle bar etc.....


    in my opinion, these frames are the best frame design.

    I bought the frame without rear shock and I got the XM 180 for an nice price.
    The 190mm XM 180 hast 190g the FOX RP 23 has 290g .
    The XM 180 is working fine.

    Looks good to. It's a pity no one makes a 195 x 55 shock then we could squeeze 130mm out of the rear end. A 200 mm shock doesn't fit.
